Room had everything we needed. Breakfast was busy, basic but ok. Pool looked nice but we were only in Monterey for 1 night. If you go into Monterey try to visit The Fish Hopper restaurant - amazing view and fabulous food even for non fish eaters. Need a jumper as it gets cold in the evening

My family of 3 stayed here for 2 nights while in Monterey. I expected the partial wall divider to be a little more of a divider than it was (only about 2.5' so not really much) but the room was clean, the water pressure was good and the grounds were very lovely. The breakfast was pretty ho hummmm but they did have waffles so we were happy. Hot tub was nice and pool was cold! But i'm from Texas so by Aug my pool is NOT cold!! We were not willing to pay for the rooms that were $350 plus in Monterey (its a pricy town) we spent most of our time on wharf or whale watching and eating yummy food, not in the room! Its close to all the action (about a mile) breakfast didn't start till 7:30 which was late to us but worked ok, we walked the streets and enjoyed all the flowers, plants and trees.

Room Tip: the rooms facing pool (inwards) have a nice view of pool and grounds and patio

We decided very last minute to do a quick 1 night trip to Monterey. We went to the Monterey Underwater Film Festival (great -- do it next year: www.montereyshootout.com/film-festival/), fished off the pier and visited the aquarium, of course. All that was fun. And so, we only needed a basic place to sleep for the night. Basic is the key word here. The pros: good location and clean. The cons: paper thin walls mean you hear your neighbors at all hours, the included breakfast didn't look good so we skipped it, the mattress was a little saggy. And the price for all of that was pretty high. Now, it is Monterey, and the prices everywhere were crazy high this weekend and lots of things were already sold out. So, if you need something cheap (well, cheap-ish for the area) and well located for a quick trip. But you can probably find better most of the time.

It's hard to get enthused for this review. About all I can say is, hotels in Monterey are pricey, and this one was one of the less pricey options available on short notice. So, I wasn't expecting anything too fancy, and that's pretty much what I got. The rooms seemed at least clean, but everything is very worn and dated. The hot tub and pool were nice. The free breakfast was ok. I guess if I had to sum it up in a word it would be: Meh.

The managers were very helpful, they tried to accommodate your necessities. Rooms very clean and they have enough pillows and towels. Wifi worked great , breakfast include it. Check in fast and ready when you arrived. Easy access to pool and Jacuzzi from your room.

Room Tip: Firsts rooms are quieter.

I stayed here for 3 nights in July while exploring Monterey and Big Sur. The hotel staff were friendly and the room was spacious and clean. We had a room right next to the pool so we could just slide open our door and jump right in. The pool water was chilly but the hot tub was just right! Breakfast is included with assortments of cereal, muffins, waffles (that you make yourself), and hard boiled eggs. The grounds were pretty and well maintained. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone else staying in the area.

Room Tip: If you're going to be using the pool a lot, ask for a room on the 1st floor near it.

We stayed here for 1 night on the way up to San Francisco, we arrived around tea time and checked in with no problems. Wifi worked great. The staff were friendly. The room was clean. Free breakfast was included in the room, the breakfast was ok but the room it was served in was a bit small. Cannery row was good.
